Separatist Cossacks blamed for shooting down Malaysian Airliner

Evidence that the Air Malaysia jet was shot down by a missile points to Donyetsk Cossack Rebels

It appears a SA-11 or SA-17 (BUK) Surface to air missile was used by Ukranian separatist rebels to down the ill-fated Malaysian airliner earlier today.

Internet sleuths quickly pointed the finger to Donyetsk rebels. Intercepted mobile phone conversations suggest that a Cossack Unit operating a SA-11 or SA-17 missile launching vehicle may have been responsible for shooting down the airliner and killing almost 300 innocent civilians. It is suspected that this is the same crew that downed a military transport earlier in the week.

Sources in the area claim to have taken a video of the crew departing with the launcher, which was reportedly captured in the preceding weeks, and the news celebrated in the Russian press.
